In brief: Yes
Although this may be something simple like a plugged duct a percentage of breast cancers are found in pregnant or lactating mothers.
The screening mamograms require close scruteny by the radiologists and other studies like ultrasound or needle biopsy may be required to sort it out. Call your OB and get the ball rolling, no one needs to sit on this.
